Meet the team

Debbie Michael

Hello! I am Debbie Michael, Service Manager for Enfield’s Fostering Service. I have been working for Enfield Council since 2002, first as a manager in the Child Protection Team for one year then as a manager in the Adoption Service for 13 years. I was appointed as the Fostering Service Manager in February 2016, a busy role with some challenges at times, but ultimately very rewarding and interesting.

If you’re considering fostering then that’s great news! You’ll be making a great decision that will give some of the most vulnerable children in our community a safe and stable environment to live in. Our recruitment team can’t wait to speak to you and help you start your journey. Get in touch as soon as you can by emailing one of the team or

If you are a current foster carer, thank you for your continued commitment and excellent care that you provide to our vulnerable children and young people. This is greatly appreciated by myself and the whole department. I have met many, but not all, of you but I look forward to speaking with everyone in the future. Please feel free to contact me if there’s ever anything you would like to discuss. Wishing you all good health and happiness.
